FLICORIAN is an oversized, seamless, top-down, open front cardigan with a little twist. Dropped shoulder construction as the textural pattern used in the garment, big amount of positive ease and A – silhouette achieved by effortless body shaping offer not only the pleasurable knitting time, but also the variety of wearing possibilities. All you need to do is to wear the cardigan bottom up and the long jacket transforms into cropped shrug / bolero with overlapping fronts. Lace transition between the tuck stitch ribbing and stockinette stitch, featured in the bottom body, adds a bit of romantic look and creates an elegant collar lines when worn upside down.

Cardigan is worked from top down. Upper shoulders are worked separately and flat. Once the upper back is completed, stitches for fronts are picked up and worked separately, one by one, till the bottom of the armhole. Then all pieces are joined together and the rest of the body is worked as one piece with subtle body shaping, finished with stockinette hem. Simple and narrow stockinette stitch sleeves are worked as last and in the round.
